Ted N. C. Wilson, a vice president of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and the son of a former church president, was today elected to serve as president of the 16.3-million member global Protestant denomination.

Wilson was appointed by the church's 246-member Nominating Committee and confirmed by the General Conference Session delegation, which is an international body of 2,410 appointed members and the highest governing body in the church.

Wilson replaces Jan Paulsen, who has served as president since 1999.

The appointment took place at the church's 59th General Conference Session, being held at the Georgia Dome and adjacent World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, United States.

"This is not just an organization, this is not just another denomination. This is God's remnant church," Wilson said in an address to delegates after his appointment.

"I do not know everything, but I shall seek wisdom from counselors and from the Bible and from the Spirit of Prophecy," he said, referring to the writings of church co-founder Ellen White.

"The Spirit of Prophecy is one of the great gifts God has given to the Seventh-day Adventist Church," Wilson said. "It applies to the past and to the future. And, we are going home soon."

Wilson asked that church members ask for God's guidance "and pray that the Holy Spirit would bring us revival and reformation."

Wilson, 60 years old, was elected as a general vice president of the Adventist Church in 2000 during the General Conference Session in Toronto. His 36 years of denominational service include administrative and executive posts in the Mid-Atlantic United States, Africa and Russia.

Wilson began his church career as a pastor in 1974 in the church's Greater New York Conference. He served as an assistant director and then director of Metropolitan Ministries there from 1976 to 1981. He went on to serve in the church's then Africa-Indian Ocean Division, based in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire, until 1990. There he served as a departmental director and later as executive secretary, the second highest officer.

Following his post in West Africa, he served at the church's world headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, United States, as an associate secretary for two years before accepting the position of president of the church's Euro-Asia Division in Moscow, Russia, from 1992 to 1996. Wilson then came back to the United States to serve as president of the Review and Herald Publishing Association in Hagerstown, Maryland, until his election as a General Conference vice president in 2000.

An ordained minister, Wilson holds a doctorate degree in religious education from New York University, a master of divinity degree from Andrews University and a master of science degree in public health from Loma Linda University's School of Public Health.

I think we needed a new president. Jan Paulsen did a good job and his willingness to talk to youth was refreshing. His encouragement for the church to be more involved with the community was also a welcome inititative. Overall though I think his approach was 'dont rock the boat' unity at all costs even if it meant some comprimise to beliefs.

I think the new president will be less comprimising in this regard. Of course it's too early to judge at this stage.

Sometimes I think it would be nice to have a young, dynamic, non US person to be president.
But let's pray God will imbue this man with the power, passion and vision of a young person and the spirit of Elijah.

Cinders, why have you lied in this post? That is a direct LIE! And I thought JW forbade you from lying?

Dan BULL is not the new Vatican Pope and everyone knows it.

Why did you tell a willful lie? A lie is a lie!

Secondly, can you come visit me and teach me a bit more about JW? JW do house visits, right?

In responding to post 2, "This is not just an organization, this is not just another denomination, this is God's remnant church". This is a wrong and bold statment to make in front of the entire world of Christians. All Christians are the church in any time of history. How dare he exclude other peoples and good churches as somehow, not worth a dime. How PRIDEFUL. The sda church with this new President is still going to be the same old sda church as it has always been. He is going to refer to the Spirt of Prophey for truth. He still will follow a woman who is not in the Bible and has been proven to be a false prophet. The church will never come out of the dark. I am sorry to say all of this, but it's time for poeple wake up. This church is not special, it is prideful and blind.

Mr. Neal Wilson happens to know all about Ellen White and her lies. He looked into it in the the 1980's. He chose to sweep it away like so many other ministers at that time. We had talks with him and he just smoothed everything away. So I ask, what kind of learder will the sda church have now ? A man who loves position and money over the truth is the sda leader now ?

Mr. Neal Wison speaks of the sda as the remnant church. There is no remnant church. The church of God is new and is not part of a remnant. The 144,000 are the redeemed from the the earth. They are the 12 tribes of Israel who have the seal on their foreheads. It is Israel who is the remnant of God and have a seal on their foreheads, not the sda church. Read Rev.7-8. Look at the Bible.

Diane, please I encourage you to prayerfully search the Scriptures and match it with history. You will regret making such statements. May God have mercy on you...one God, one Bible, one Truth - the complete Bible Truth, and only one true Church that follows exactly all the teachings and Commandments of God. You choose which God you will serve, but us Seventh-day Adventists, we will serve the Lord.

I'm NOT elected yet! Perhaps she is a new prophet and knows I'll be elected as the NEW POPE just before the second coming of CHRIST?

General Conference President--Neal C. Wilson--states under oath in Court:

"Although it is true that there was a period in the life of the Seventh-day Adventist church when the denomination took a distinctly anti-Roman Catholic viewpoint, and the term 'hierarchy' was used in a pejorative sense to refer to the papal form of church governance, that attitude on the church's part was nothing more than a manifestation of widespread anti-popery among conservative protestant denominations in the early part of this century and the latter part of the last, and which has now been consigned to the historical trash heap so far as the Seventh-day Adventist church is concerned."
Reply Brief for the Defendant, p 4, case #C-74-2025 CBR. March 30, 1975.

In 1985, Neal Wilson denied ever making such a statement. He states:

"Our position is not changed. But our work is not to denounce the Roman Catholic church. We speak the truth and let the truth do the cutting. We have not consigned anything to the 'trash heap,' as one publication has charged. We are not watering down or diluting the message. I regret that statements get into print that do not give an accurate picture."
Pacific Union Recorder, Feb 18, 1985.

Israel Izenberg, yes, there is one Bible and one truth given to the entire world for humanity to accept or reject. The sda church has two truths. The bible and Ellen White. The sda church does not keep all the commandments of God. They do not teach or keep the New Testaments commandments. God have mercy on the sda church who uses Ellen for truth and the bible. Two truths. Neal Wilson needs to run not to Ellen, but the Bible and the Bible alone. Then there wrould be one truth like all the other Chrtistian churches use. The Bible only. Sda church is not the church that comes down from history. This is also incorrect. Adventist are wonderful people but are deceived by your prophet and you don't even know it.

Diane I asked if you could name the 1050 nre commandments by heart and if not then you would not know when you are breaking one. I called you a legalist because apparently you are accussing everyone of not keeping the NT com'. So then you are a legalist of the worst kind you don;t even know the commandents by heart that you are supposed saying you keep.

You mypocrate! what kind of a professed christian are you anyway that you do not know the 1050 com's of Paul of Calif. anyway??? HUMMMMMMM
